Areas of Expertise

  • Vascular function
  • Neural control of circulation
  • Exercise physiology
  • Integrative phsiology in humans


Research methods

Dr. Barbosa's research uses beat-to-beat heart rate, blood pressure, and vascular measures in major arteries (e.g. brachial, carotid, femoral) in humans at rest and in response to exercise and flow-mediated dilation.  He also uses post-exercise ischemia, neck pressure/suction, and lower-body positive/negative pressure to modulate the mechanisms of neural control of circulation in human health and disease.
